PROJECT MUSIC students “Take a Drum Ride” with Bob Bloom

The Preludes program at PROJECT MUSIC seeks to expose our youngest students to music-making in diverse and exciting ways, inspiring them to view musicianship as a natural part of their lives. One Wednesday afternoon in November, we were joined in this mission by Master Teaching Artist Bob Bloom, who has been presenting music workshops to children across Connecticut for many years. Mr. Bloom arrived carrying bags overflowing with percussion equipment, allowing every child to participate in playing at least three different instruments. Singing and playing together for nearly an hour, the workshop gave a fun boost to the Kindergarten and 1st Grade students, many of whom joined the ranks of PROJECT MUSIC only one month ago.
